Despite a loaded backcourt the Los Angeles Clippers are expected to keep Serbian point guard Milos Teodosic, according to the Los Angeles Times’ Broderick Turner.

Teodosic exercised a $6.3-million player option last month which led to speculation that the Clippers might move him, but the deadline to waive him passed on Sunday and he is now guaranteed $2.1M of his salary.

Teodosic averaged 9.5 points and 4.6 assists per game last season.

Clippers Patrick Beverley Ejected for Tossing Ball at Fan

Published

Los Angeles Clippers point guard Patrick Beverley was ejected from Sunday’s game against the Dallas Mavericks after tossing a basketball towards a fan, which led to Beverley’s ejection from the game.

Beverley claims that the fan told him to “f–k your mother,” which led him to bouncing the ball at him.

“I told the referee, I told the security,” Beverley said, according to ESPN. “I mean, I’ve never gotten ejected out of a game since I’ve been in the NBA. You know, I play hard, I play within the lines, of course. I play within the rules, of course. I’ve never been ejected in my career in the NBA, but I’m a grown man. I have morals. Of course, God is first, family is second for me, and I stand firmly behind that.

“I just, I can accept the ‘F–k you, Beverley,’ the ‘F–k you, Pat,’ but out of the lines of my mother, anybody who knows me, man, knows I’m a family-first guy, and there’s some things that are unacceptable. After I told the refs, I told security, the Dallas security, told both of them and again, he said it again. So if no one going to control fans, what are we supposed to do as players?”

“This has happened to me twice,” Beverley said. “It happened to me in OKC. A fan can just walk up on me and clap in my face. It happened to me here after I tried to handle it in a different way. I let the ref know, the ref said, ‘Keep playing.’ I get on a loose ball, have a guy dive from the 3-point line to jump on me, and then a guy says it again while security is there, so there’s only so much you can take.

“Of course, I’m not praising me getting kicked out of a game. But I have morals, and I will stand for my morals, and family is important to me, and that’s one of the morals I stand for.”

When it comes to anyone messing with his teammates, Los Angeles Clippers forward Montrezl Harrell isn’t playing around, and he wasn’t going to stand for Minnesota Timberwolves guard Derrick Rose approaching Milos Teodosic after some chippy play during Monday night’s game.

“I’m the type of player who sticks up for his teammates,” Harroll said, according to ClutchPoints. “So honestly, when the altercation happened, when I saw D-Rose walking up on my teammate, that’s when it was time for me step in.

“I really don’t care what people feel about it,” Harrell added. “I don’t care who likes it and who doesn’t. I’m the type of player who plays for his teammates. I play for the guys that are on the court with me. And I feel like, at that point in time, Derrick Rose went after a person who really wasn’t even trying to cause that type of situation.”

Harell finished with  13 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists, and three steals in the victory over Minnesota.
